Very sad story...

Damn this is a sad thread, have a read of this....

Thought I might post this here to provide an example for ANYONE who may drive in excess of what is safe. Not saying that anyone here drives like this, but it may make you think twice about "taking that risk you normally wouldn't take". Just hope to god nothing like this ever happens on one of our cruises.....

Sorry if this has been posted before... BTW can the mods please not relocate this thread....

Re: Very sad story...

Lucky for us, our cars probably cant go that fast most of the time Still, I know I've done some of the most crazy driving while on cruises (nothing like 160 around a corner though..)..

Pretty rough that the passenger cops death while the driver pretty much got out unscathed (except for what the law will probably do to him..)

Most people know to not do anything stupid with others in the car.. if you're gonna be an idiot, at least try to minimize the chance of injuring others by doing it alone :)

Re: Very sad story...

oh shit.

This is why I keep saying driver training is the answer - bugger the speed, he should have been familiar enough with the car to know it wouldn't handle the corner at that speed!

Re: Very sad story...

My deepest sympathies and condolances to the victim's family... This sort of thing shits me up the wall because idiots like this are driving on the roads and killing people for the sake of showing off a little.

I hope (and I'm pretty confident) that the people in our club aren't that stupid, and that we all think of ourselves and others when driving on the road. There's a time and place for a little stupidity, and that's where it won't hurt anyone.

Re: Very sad story...

A couple of things about the crash. The driver has burns to 60% of his body. Last I checked no one had any real idea what happened. There possibly was another car involved. However, this does not change the fact that if you drive like an idiot, you will get hurt.

Nothing on this earth beats holding your newborn child for the first time.

Re: Very sad story...

I don't have much to say to that.

It's just that probability WILL catch up with drivers with little experience and of course, little sense of responsibility.

NC2 - with all the bells and whistles of course...

Re: Very sad story...

When my friend ruptured his fuel tank in his VS, he did 180 down the northern to get to heathcote, i decided to stick to the limit. But seriously he had a leaking fuel tank and was speeding. If he had had a accident and a spark occured, he and his passenger could have been killed. Now i've done some crazy stuff but i think ill think twice, considering this story. Remember its worse to kill someone else then kill urself
